The Quail and Olive was founded by Dr. Stephen Brabeck. A board-certified cardiologist, Dr. Stephen Brabeck dedicated his life to improving the health and well-being of others. He long advocated a healthy diet and active lifestyle as the best ways to live a long and quality-filled life. He recognized that the chemical makeup of olive oil included elements essential to preventing heart disease and other chronic illnesses. What followed was the natural extension of healthy living – The Quail and Olive. He has now passed his business to his daughter Annelise who shares his passion for food and health.
